Nursery EYPP

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding that a childcare provider can claim, which as a setting we can use to improve a three or four year old child's learning and development.

Children are eligible if they attend a BCC childcare provision to provide free entitlement funded places and parents claim one more of the benefits listed below:

  • Income Support
  • Income Support Job Seekers Allowance
  • Income Related Employment & Support Allowance
  • Support Under IV of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of state Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided that you are not also entitled to working tax credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax run on- paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for working tax credit
  • Universal Credit

In addition a child is eligible under the additional criteria below:

  • Looked after by the local authority for at least one day
  • Have left care through special guardianship
  • Are subject to a child arrangement order (what used to be known as a residence order)

The EYPP funding is linked to your child's free early entitlement so cannot be used to reduce any extra childcare fees you may pay.
